Natural Hair Dyes for Dark Hair

by Teresa

Does one use any of the four herbs or the first two and cherry tree bark or cloves as the third herb.

Simmer 1/3 cup walnut shells, black tea, cherry tree bark or whole cloves in 2 1/2 cups distilled water in a non-metal pot for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. After the mixture has cooled, strain out the herbs, saving the liquid.

Non-metal pot... Go for glass!
by: Kyley

Hey Marly,

I use a big, heavy duty glass (Pyrex) measuring cup. I heat it in a metal pot that has about an inch of water in it. I love the pouring spout on the pitcher, and using the "double boiler" method keeps the ingredients for scorching.

Hope that helps!

What sort of pot is non-metal? Help please!

Herbs for Dark Hair
by: Kyley

Hi Teresa, thanks for asking - it's always nice to hear from people!

The idea is to use any one of those ingredients on their own, but in fact I don't see why you couldn't combine them.

You might want to experiment - I'm guessing the only thing that will happen is your hair will go really dark. Not totally sure though, because I have lighter hair and I don't use the darkening herbs. Good luck!
